The King And Queen Of Pain

Gina Haspel was narrowly approved by the Senate last week to be the new CIA director despite being grilled for being a supposed proponent of torture during the Bush Administration. Lawmakers repeatedly asked her if she would protest if perhaps Trump wanted to restart interrogation techniques such as waterboarding to which she basically did what all conservative Republicans do; avoid answering the question. You know it’s bad when Dick Cheney reemerges from his lair and states with Haspel in charge, the U.S. should restart harsh interrogations.

Of course, the Trump administration denies that Trump wants to resume the torture program, despite stating many times that he would definitely reinstate the method because “it works”. Perhaps Haspel can initiate a new torture method involving spanking with a Forbes magazine. We’re sure our megalomaniac, liar-in-chief would volunteer for that and maybe confess everything about lying on his taxes, his affair with Stormy Daniels, any collusion with Russia and the 3001 other deceptions he’s thrown at the public since his inauguration.

New CIA director and torture aficionado, Gina Haspel, has announced a new method of interrogation that meets with overwhelming approval from American CEO/Dictator Donald Trump.

Cheney’s No Brainer

Just in time for the holidays…Torture!  Yes nothing exemplifies holiday spirit like torture(you have to admit, forced family fun is a kind of torture.) The Senate Intelligence Committee(what an oxymoron!) recently released a 528 page summary(the original is 6000 pages) that explains in detail that the CIA used various forms on detainees from 2001 to 2006 and kept it hidden from government officials and the American people. Dick Cheney, who in 2006 called torture a no brainer,  has even been making the rounds again claiming he’d do it all over again. Yes, America has proudly placed itself in the pantheon of torturing nations like Russia, North Korea, Iran and Syria. What great company we’re keeping, eh? We dug up a photo-toon from our November 13, 2006 issue where America’s most notorious war criminal defended waterboarding to a pliant, sycophantic media. All we have to say about Mr. Cheney and his asinine commentary is  “WHAT A DICK!

Dick Cheney says waterboarding is a 'no brainer'.

Vice President Dick Cheney recently commented that using waterboarding techniques on detainees is a 'no-brainer'.
